How good are the EFAN 21700 batteries.

Yes, for maximum capacity (with at least 10A of discharge ability) 21700 beats 20700 by a good margin:

HJK Test/reviews:
Panasonic/Sanyo NCR20700B 4000mAh
48G Vapcell Purple NCR21700 4800mAh

These are apparently the best available for each (in that category), unless someone knows of something better.

Lucky guy! I waited 3 weeks before I cancelled my order (and found them in a vape-store around the proverbial corner).

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Very interested.
I’ve been anxiously waiting for a 21700 format light.

Seeing as how most chargers won’t be able to fit a 20700 (probably closer to 74mm) plus how hard they are to find and buy, I’m assuming Astrolux are going to include a battery and have built in charging.

Does this sound about right?

I’ve seen an Acebeam and a Manker wrapped 20700. Both were 74mm. The Acebeam review said it was protected, but it didn’t say that on the wrapper. Neither said protected on the wrapper. I think both had button tops, so maybe they did have protection circuits added or maybe just the button tops? IDK. I’m still learning about these cells.

Both flat tops measuring <= 70.5mm

Had to be the circuit or button if you saw something close to 74mm.
